Hazard Communication - BETWEEN PHASES

Safety Alert Type: 
Worksites
Date of Incident / Close Call: 
2006-06-05
Company Name: 
Interfor Coastal Woolands
Details of Incident / Close Call: 

Many of the hazards in logging are ‘Man-Made’: hang-ups, loose rocks or stumps, improper placement of right-of-way logs, unstable cut banks, etc. Initially, these ‘man-made’ hazards should be prevented, or if need be, controlled as much as possible. However, if these hazards remain after the initial phase, their existence must be communicated to the next phase(s) of logging.
Upon completion of any phase of logging, an INSPECTION and DOCUMENTATION of hazards created in the course of the phase is required. As well as natural hazards left behind (e.g. snags), any identified ongoing ‘man-made’ hazards must be communicated via the attached written HAZARD REPORT. (This Hazard Report form is also available in the back-end of the Safety Alert/Bulletin Binder provided to all Prime Contractors.)
If the initial logging or road construction phase involves employees or a Sub-Contractor hired by the Prime Contractor, it is the responsibility of the Prime Contractor to ensure this post-phase Hazard Assessment is completed and COMMUNICATED to next phase(s). If the initial phase of work is completed by a Contractor hired by the Licensee, it is the responsibility of Interfor staff to arrange for any mitigation of the hazards, and/or their communication as part of the PRE-WORKS to the Contractor Representative responsible for the next phase of work in this cut-block or road-heading.
